Hello, guys. My boyfriend (29 years) was diagnosed with Lupus more than one year ago. Week ago, we were told that pills are not heplful for him and that it is necessary to try Rituximab. So another roller coaster. I found so many helpful information here, but I still have two questions:
1. What side effects can we expect, especially right after infusion? I have an one week journey planned just two days after 1st one (to see my family) and I am absolutely scared to go. My boyfriend tells me he will be in work anyway, but I am still concerned. There is no one else to help us, because we moved to foreign country only few months before diagnosis.
2. How can I help him? I take care about our home, I cook every day, so he can save his energy and eat healthy, I organize trips to make him relaxed and I also understand that he needs time to accept that his life has rapidly changed. So I have these stuffs covered and I need to know what else could be helpful? What helps you to make this evil illness easier? I tried to make him do yoga, but he would not, because it is for women (in his absolutely wrong opinion, may I say).
Thank you so much for every advice!
